With her mother dead and father long gone, Chise Hatori has spent her childhood being passed unwanted from relative to relative, until she finally makes her unfortunate way to a strange and improbable auction block. Offered as a “sleigh beggy” to the highest bidder, Chise is purchased by the (literally) boneheaded Elias Ainsworth, who promises to take her on as his apprentice. Elias is a mage, and his world is one of dragons and faeries - but before Chise can begin to get accustomed to all that nonsense, Elias drops another bombshell. Apparently Chise isn't just intended to be his apprentice - she will also be his bride.
Nominated for the 8th Manga Taisho Award.

easily in my top 5. The character development going on in both Chise and Elias is like nothing I've ever encountered before in a manga. The whole setting is intriguing and delightful, and there never fails to be at least one scene PER CHAPTER that takes my breath away. I'm a cheap person who likes my manga free, but Mahou Tsukai no Yome is one of the very, very few works that i've ever purchased. And you'd better believe i bought every volume i could get my grubby little hands on.
Holy Crap! 11/10
Wow, just wow.
Don't let the fluff and slow start fool you, this is by far one of the best mangas I have ever read. The sheer amount of character depth, lore, and beautiful artwork just sucks you in. The plot is becoming increasingly complex and very tightly woven, and the most recent chapters have ended on cliffhangers that come out of nowhere and leave you begging for more. Or rather, in my case, gasping and screaming in outrage that you have to wait another month to find out what happens. I can't believe this is Yamazaki Kore's first series. It has an excellent balance of action, drama, and character development that few other stories manage to achieve. Seriously, read this thing, it's amazing.
They had better make a full anime series out of this or else I will be so angry.
the first chapters are kind of slow, but then it gets just artistic. The story is kind of shoujish with some darkish but it's catching.
The characters show up when they have to, you get to learn a little about them and thats okay, they give a nostalgic feeling.
Give it a try, i hope they don't mess up into making this story so popular and making no sense chapters!
so yeah read it and give it a try!
In truth my rating is an 11/10
This series is great. I haven't read something that moved me so much, had intrigued me so much, in years. I'm a cheapskate but I'll buy all the volumes from this manga and the OVA when it comes out so I can properly support the author of this magnificent work.
I'm 3 volumes in, and I've got to give this series points for beautiful, understated art, thoughtful world building and deep, interesting characters. Mag Garden series tend to blur the line between shojo and shonen, and this is no exception. I'm interested to see how the romance will develop, considering his non-human form, but they're so cute together I find myself shipping them anyway...
Good one like another manga I know
This reminds me a lot of Antique Romance -- MC buys FMC through auction because she's special, age gap, girl depends on guy, slow but steady romance, funny moments, plus both are set in England. If you like magic and the fantasy realm on top of that then this manga is right on the money for you! There's a lot more angst in Antique but then again that is a finished series while Mahou is just starting. Have fun reading!

It has been a long time since I have gone WOW this is amazing for a manga.
Beautiful artwork, engaging story, all rolled into a dark fantasy world. I seem to be attracted to stories that explore the idea of what "family" truly means. I would recommend this to anyone who likes something beyond the norm in manga.
I don't think it's quite there yet.
I was reminded to Majo, which I love so much, when first reading this. The intricate art push me to read further, but the way the story unfold, especially the grave dog chapter left me unsatisfied. Narrative start to depend on said words than action, which I see as unfit for the art this gorgeous. Rereading Emma, I have a feeling that Mahoutsukai no Yome can reach that manga finesse in time, but not soon.
I am surprised !!!
i am really amazed of how well this story is written. It is different, appealing, and has a interest aspect of a story. I do not see any reason to give this anything below a 10 until the story start being bad.
The chapters take time to release but not worth down grading the score. I recommend this to any audience that love fantasy story with a little twist of everything else exempt sci-fi
My 2 Cents
Beautiful unique, absolutely love it. The arts gorgeous and i really enjoy these sorts of half romance half adventure/drama. The magic is beautifully done and has much more depth than i expected. Really enjoy the self-punishing style of love, its a beautiful heartache.
